What You Need To Know About Jupiter's Legacy

Who would’ve thought it’d be such a great time to be an indie comic book fan! With the success of recent hits like The Boys and Umbrella Academy, it seems like streaming services are really down to invest in lesser known superhero stories and comics in general!
Following suit with this, a short teaser was recently released for Netflix’s latest comic book adaptation, Jupiter’s Legacy, based on the Image Comics series written by Mark Millar.
He’s perhaps most known for writing two “small” Marvel Comics events.... Civil War, and Old Man Logan… Maybe you’ve heard of them?
Of course, I’d imagine some of you are wondering what THIS show is all about.
For some background on Jupiter’s Legacy, the original comic follows a group of superheroes called the Union, who first received their powers when going on an island expedition in the 1930s. In the present day, the team is seen as superstars, but their children appear to have fallen into the trappings of fame and fortune, and struggle to navigate that kind of lifestyle while attempting to live up to the family name.
Mark Millar, who also serves as an executive producer, actually drew comparisons of the series to The Incredibles, but if the kids were a NIGHTMARE!
So join us in today’s video, where we’ll be discussing everything you need to know about Jupiter’s Legacy!

    So who is the Superman copy in this series? First Brightburn, next Homelander, the newest Omni-man, and now Utopian. Atleast Utopian looks not some new evil version of Superman agaim.

    Ok! NEW DRINKING GAME!! Turn on the CC. Now every time the CC says "ethereal tinkling" take a shot. You're welcome.

  • TheTeladoy

    I saw the first episode yesterday and i think is really really good. I liked 100 times than The Boys. Jupiters Legacy is very coherent and connected to our really today day. It has a very strong connection to moral and ethic. I hope the next episodes are also so good like the first one and i hope it success. In my opinion this kind of movies needs more than nothing the support of the people, because im pretty sure that richs, politicians and people from will find it a threat.

  • MeerKhan

    i already watched the 1st season and i must say it's very good ..

    Unsatisfying series. Not bad but definitely not good enough. Had higher hopes. Also too much make America great again..

  • Jesse Ross

    This show feels kind of strange cause it deals with intense subject matter and represents in a cw, incredibly cringe and low budget action show style. Very disappointed with some aspects of the show but intrigue in the world and characters keeps you invested.

    This reminds me of Kingdom Come Superman for some reason. A generation of superheroes set the example for other superhumans, soon enough a rift is formed between the older, more idealistic generation and the younger, edgier generation and then *boom* disaster...

    So this is discount The Boys? Not worth watching 😂

      How did you here the boys in any of this? The boys explores a world of celebrities' play acting heros Its arguably the exact opposite world set up in the boys where the hero's have for the majority of their existence actually A) been pretty good at saving people B) avoid interfering in world affairs C) genuinely want to see the world be a better place even if they have a warped view of it

    I read a bunch of mark Miller stuff last year, because I wanted to see his random stuff, I’m so glad I read the series. It’s fantastic I wanna read it again

  • Mi Sproete

    The 'official trailer' only gave the Black female character about two seconds of face time. Screen Rant didn't even mention her AT ALL. I guess we're being erased again, like in the 80's-early 90's. Back of the shot, or less than half a second on screen. Pretty much invisible.

    • Tobimaru Sakuragi
      Tobimaru Sakuragi

      @Mi Sproete You also don't have your real profile pic... The hypocrisy also it's youtube we don't need to show faces to say things unless you're like basing off faces to just make a decent insult and that's low lmao

    • Mi Sproete
      Mi Sproete

      @Tobimaru Sakuragi I'm not talking about the series. Can you read? Can you comprehend what you read? First three words: THE OFFICIAL TRAILER. And nobody mentioned politics but you. Catch tf up or go sit down. And if you really even stand by or want to have a valid opinion, maybe you should use your REAL profile, if you have one, instead of the one you are using to hide behind so you can make snarky idiotic comments.

    • Tobimaru Sakuragi
      Tobimaru Sakuragi

      That's kinda a huge assumption i just finished the series there's plenty scenes that gives them time to shine... plus not everything is about politics so calm tf down.

    It's hope it's not another cynical deconstruction of superheroes told at a painfully slow pace full of people with tedious inner demons like The Boys or Doom Patrol.

      @ShastaHawk Gina Carano is born to play the lead female protagonist Jakita Wagner, who is the super strong and durable one of the trio and show, since it's basically told from her point of view.

    • ShastaHawk

      I bought the omnibus last week, which has the entire series, and read the entire book in one sitting. With that being said, I would love to see a series of it. BTW, do you know they tried to do a Global Frequency series a while back? It wasnt picked up but the pilot is on youtube if you're interested

  • Andrew Gibbons

    The creator of saga literally made the comic so off the wall that it can’t be adapted in live action. Maybe a animated version. Maybe. But wow. That would be crazy to attempt

  • MisterFloZeke

    Dude, it's Frank QUITELY, not Frank "Quietly."

    This looks pretty damn good. When they did The Boys I thought this may get some attention. Just thought it’s insecurity would hold it back. Looks great though.

    Pro tip: learn how to pronounce the guy's name before you make an entire video where you mispronounce "Millar". It's not Miller.

    • Red headed Sojourner

      @Mackenzie Brown Thank you.

    • Mackenzie Brown

    Have you guys noticed how anytime Ryan makes a video here it gets way more videos than when this guy makes a video?🤭🤔 Ryan is a legend 😂

    • ShortStuff

      You know... that may be true but it's no reason to be rude. This is his job and he does it well. It's not supposed to gain as many views as Ryan's comedy sketches. This is an informative video.

But then That logan killed logan that was trying to kill logan for killing profesor x , actuly got killed for killing profesor x . So logan died for killing profesor x after killing logan that was trying to kill logan for killing profesor x . But logan that was trying to kill logan for killing profesor x also died by the logan that was trying to kill logan aftr killing profesor x

    Nice things with these lesser known comics becoming shows is most people don't know they are comic so they don't have the expectation of an Avengers-esque puff piece

    • 苔蘚青

      @A Hope For The Last! The existence of a few exceptions doesn't change the reality that Netflix cancels most of its own shows. I'm tired of getting invested in stories and characters only to have Netflix drop the axe. It's happened far too often.

    This is how I view DC comics gods and monsters, marvel is more akin to our universe dc is like Henry Cavill's immortals or the movie sky captain

      And that's exactly the problem with DC they treat their characters like Gods there is nothing relatable about the live action DC movies they are just brooding morons
